Baker City Historic District

—Established 1874 —

In October 1940 Gwilliam Brothers Bakery celebrated the business's new building with a grand opening. Designed for high-volume bakery operations, the brick structure had a delivery truck garage in the rear and a large central oven set on a concrete foundation.
After World War II, the building was enlarged by the addition of a wing along the north (Church Street) side.
A bakery business continued in the building until 1983. That year the building was converted into a restaurant. The remodeled decor featured a new tin ceiling. The heart of the bakery - the massive oven - remained in the building, however.
